The Presidential Campaign train of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, arrived Kaduna on Thursday to tumultuous reception as thousands of jubilant supporters thronged Ahmadu Bello Staduim for a presidential rally.
Security, jobs and the issue of hunger dominated discussion as the crowd cheered and screamed for an end to the regime of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and President Muhammadu Buhari.
The National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus listed reasons why the good people of Kaduna state must not vote for any other party outside the PDP in all elections.
He said the PDP has a track record of good governance and delivery of democracy dividends, it has an experienced candidate in the person of the former Vice President who has been tested in both public and private sectors.
He said that the Buhari Presidency has lowered the esteem of the nation with his embarrassing outings recently and assured the people that Atiku will restore Nigeria and return its status in the comity of nations.
“Atiku will deliver on his promises unlike President Buhari who has not been able to keep any of his promises because he is not in charge, he sleeps while cabals destroy the country.
The National Chairman assured the people of Kaduna state that Atiku Presidency at the federal and Ashiru governorship in the state will restore peace and good neighborliness in the state.
The Presidential Candidate, Atiku, in his own remarks assured the people that his Presidency would provide adequate security that will restore the glory of Kaduna state.
Atiku said that APC failed to fulfil any of their promises to the people because they lack the competence.
He charged the people to not only vote PDP in all the elections but be ready to defend their votes and stop APC from stealing them.
The Director General of the campaign and the Senate President Bukola Saraki told the mammoth crowd of supporters that APC should be rejected at the poll because they have failed to provide the much needed peace in Kaduna and the country.
The former Vice President Namadi Sambo who is from the state also addressed the crowd and assured them that a vote for PDP is vote for peace in the state and the country.
Critical stakeholders of the party in the North, former National Chairman Dr Haliru Bello, former Governors of Kaduna and Niger states, Ahmad Makarfi and Dr Babangida Aliyu respectively all graced the highly successful rally.
The PDP Presidential campaign train leaves Kaduna on Friday after a national conference on security to the North Central state of Benue on Saturday.
